I learn by seeing something full and working and then figure out how it works. I just get bored by reading loads of crap
As you may come to learn an Arduino board is not a consumer appliance like a PC or playstation can be. An Arduino is designed for people to build stuff while learning new skills in programming and electronics needed to take on more and more complex projects over time. It's really not a good device for just cutting and pasting others programs into it and expecting it to work exactly like you wish.
So you have to decide to move on to a different more consumer oriented product or buckle down to the task of learning how to make an Arduino do things. Your choice, just no whining allowed.
